Postcards by Neil Mcsweeney

8/10 Phil 21 June 2007
Here's a new 7" on Kids by Neil Mcsweeney called Postcards. He's some singer songwriter dude who makes a serious noise. The press release says Lou Reed crossed with Tracy Chapman and that's not a million miles away. Also we heard bits of Roy Orbison and loads of Bryan Ferry in his voice. The guitars build up in a very Lou Reed/ Velvets way to a roaring crescendo. Extremely miserable sounding yet uplifting.... but as the man clearly sounds like he's about be all depressed everywhere he gets my vote.

8/10 james lacey

I've got the album and have seen the band play, so I know a bit about Mr McSweeney...but although this song is great and really makes a change from the usual singer-songwriter stuff that gets radio 2 play, it's not exactly his usual style. Not a bad thing, of course, and shows that he's got real potential to diversify with his mood (which has to be said is generaly downbeat) But, I'm a big fan and if anyone likes Nick Cave, Tom Waits or Velvet Underground, then Neil McSweeney is a good modern Americana addition to your collection. To sum up, a very bold and emotionally intense debut.
